@ The Sun on Thursday 28th October 2021 and 7 other Thursdays

A funner way to play the speed dating game, this unique singles mixer at The Jam Tree gives you the chance to mingle with up to 20 people across a series of 4-minute dates. Games are the order of the day though as the DateinaDash team lay down the childish antics with painting, Lego building, twister and board games to get the ball rolling.

@ The Candlemaker on Every Saturday

Saturday at the Candlemaker always gets a little bonkers as resident bingo-caller and hot beverage aficionado Tina Turner Tea Lady pitches up to bring you one of the best brunch events in Battersea. Tuck into eggs Florentina and Sicilian bruschetta while Tina gets the crowd going with musical comedy and games and the chance to win big.

@ Forbidden Nights @ Infernos on Saturday 6th November 2021 and 29 other Saturdays

It's more than just the fire performers bringing the heat at this raunchy male variety show. Held at the suitably named Infernos, Forbidden Nights is all about acrobatics, aerialists and abs for days as this team of exceptionally talented men offer up the ultimate trip to fantasyland with their jaw-dropping acts and slick dance routines.

A charming, salt-of-the-earth spot down on Ransomes Dock, this unique restaurant puts focus on meat-heavy but healthy dishes. Alongside some rustic interiors, their menus front a stunning selection of eats, from beer-battered whelks to juicy steaks fresh off the BBQ.
